Ramadan 2022: UAE authorities announce Ramadan working hours for employees

Ramadan is expected to start on 2 April.

The working hours for UAE employees during Ramadan 2022 have been announced.

Confirmed today (3 March), working hours for federal government employees will be from 9am to 2pm from Monday and Thursday and from 9am until midday on Fridays.

Ramadan is likely to begin on Saturday 2 April and the Holy Month will last for either 29 or 30 days.

Based on the new crescent of the lunar cycle, the new moon at the start of the ninth month of the Islamic calendar will signify the beginning of Ramadan.

The task of spotting the new crescent is placed upon the moon sighting committee who will convene after maghrib or sunset prayers on the 29th day of Sha’ban.
